Figure Photography: OOPS! ALL TOMMIES!

 


Over the 30 years of Power Rangers history, the character of Tommy Oliver (Jason David Frank) has played a bunch of roles:

Your Kimchi Update

You bet your ass I planned this picture.


So, as of now, the house and cats have been fully integrated for a full week. Everyone’s sharing the house 100% of the time, and we’re comfortable trusting everyone overnight while we sleep and alone in the house while we’re out, which is a huge relief.

The Loadout: Mobile Games


Volume II of The Loadout covers mobile games. All these games are played pretty much exclusively on my iPad Pro, aka my primary computing device, aka my Large Print å

Figure Photography: “Contest of Champs”


Pretty self-explanatory. I haven’t seen the new movie yet because Life but I like to think Thor didn’t give up playing games with Korg after he got his shit together.

Figure Photography: “Meme”


I mean, it was RIGHT THERE.

Lightning Collection Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa (Wedding 2-Pack)

I may eventually revise this to fix the hands better but the meme’s only got a couple of days left so…

Figure Photography: “Practice, Practice, Practice”


Some of my figure photo plans will emerge as I go through and take stock of the full collection.

Some of my figure photo plans are waiting for certain Lightning Collection pre-orders to be fulfilled because they require a full team and I do not as yet have a full team

And sometimes you find a Tiny Arcade Dance Dance Revolution on sale at Target and you realize the scale is just about right and goddamn there it is.

The Stupid Marvel Cartoon Project: Avengers Assemble Season 2


For about 10 episodes of Season 2, I thought I was gonna describe this season of Avengers Assemble as comfortably settling into the very average mediocrity Season 1 eventually found. It was telling a barely serviceable knockoff of the Infinity Stones saga where all the stones are on Earth (well sort of), there is no Soul Stone, and each stone is acquired by our heroes  over the course of a single half hour episode.

The Loadout: Podcasts



So, in the interests of content generation and also implementing ideas that have been kicking around my head for years, I present the first installment in The Loadout. Basically, for any given category of nerd shit, what nerd shit am I fucking with? And what better way to start than the one that changes the least often - podcasts.

Dream Match: Alien Vs. Predator

 These have been sitting around waiting to be posted for a while, but the last batch of figure photos I did are more Dream Match pictures - “Alien Vs. Predator”.

The Stupid Marvel Cartoon Project: Avengers Assemble Season 1


One of the fun things about projects like this is disambiguating “bad”, I don’t like it”, and “Not intended for me”. The first season of Avengers Assemble, after much consideration, is mostly nad but works its way to sorta competent by the end.

Meet Kimchi

So this is why I haven’t posted anything for a few weeks even though I’ve gotten new toys, finished Avengers Assemble Season 1 and done a writeup, and made a new batch of Dream Match toy pics. And gotten new toys.

Figure Photography: May Be Trouble

 


Not gonna lie. I had so much fun making this it validated the entire idea to start doing this.

Figure Photography: “Dream Match 2”


Dream Match 2 also features Orange Cassidy, in one of his more active modes. The hands-in-pockets shotgun dropkick!

Figure Photography: “Dream Match 1”

This is pretty basic and self-explanatory. Two figures, wrestling ring background, make it look like they’re fighting. There’s gonna be a bunch of these because, well, I think it’s fun.

The Stupid Marvel Cartoon Project: Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United


 Can you call it a palate cleanser when it’s mostly garbage?

Heroes United: Iron Man and Hulk is the first of a series of PS4-launch-era-style CGI cutscenes that try to leverage the popularity of the MCU and the success of the DC Animated direct to video movies as cheaply as possible, and it shows.

The Famous Covers Collection Is Complete

’ve bought a lot of toys over a lot of years, but one of the absolute peak times was the late 90’s and early 2000’s. And a big thing in that time was the Toy Biz “Famous Covers” series.

The Stupid Marvel Cartoon Project: Ultimate Spider-Man

If I were to say one thing about “Ultimate Spider-Man”, I’d have to say this. It goes down reeeeeal easy.

Another New Dumb Hobby

So, I guess my hobby needed a hobby?

I have a lot of action figures. And in the latter half of 2021, I started getting back into 6-ish” scale in a big way, thanks mostly to Hasbro, a bit of DC Multiverse, and Jazwares’ All Elite Wrestling toys.

Game Pass: The New Batch

Been a while since I talked Game Pass but a shit-ton of new games came out recently and I’ve been trying them out. Haven’t found anything to tear me away or even really distract me from my current obsession (another post) but I gave everything I downloaded a try except Elite Dangerous which wanted me to create an account with the developer company and I ain’t gonna do controller password entry to fuck with a free game.

The Stupid Marvel Cartoon Project: Super Hero Squad / Avengers: EMH

The One That Broke Me

It’s been a weird five months. I went on vacation in September for like three weeks and… then it was January? The point is, for various reasons, this project bogged down, and one of the big reasons was Super Hero Squad
